* A downloader is a special implementation of a nsIStreamListener that will
* make the contents of the stream available as a file. This may utilize the
* disk cache as an optimization to avoid an extra copy of the data on disk.
* The resulting file is valid from the time the downloader completes until
* the last reference to the downloader is released.
interface nsIDownloader : nsIStreamListener
* Initialize this downloader
* @param observer
* the observer to be notified when the download completes.
* @param downloadLocation
* the location where the stream contents should be written.
* if null, the downloader will select a location and the
* resulting file will be deleted (or otherwise made invalid)
* when the downloader object is destroyed. if an explicit
* download location is specified then the resulting file will
* not be deleted, and it will be the callers responsibility
* to keep track of the file, etc.
void init(in nsIDownloadObserver observer,

interface nsIDownloadObserver : nsISupports
* Called to signal a download that has completed.
